The Foundation has identified several categories of people who cannot afford two basic meals per day – unemployed migrants who move to the cities and their children, patients and their family members coming to Mumbai for medical treatment specially for diseases like Cancer, inmates of old age and shelter homes. We haveadopted four Cancer shelter homes - one in Chembur and three in Kharghar. We provide meals to the inmates of these homes, who come from across the country for treatment at the Tata Memorial Hospital. We are working on adopting more such homes and also having tie-ups with old age homes, orphanages and hospitals to scale up to our initial target of providing 5000 meals per day.
Support to Old Age Homes
With the disintegration of the joint family system and more nuclear families, a large number of the younger generation are pursuing career opportunities abroad. This leaves many senior citizens lonely, helpless and unable to look after themselves.
Centrum Foundation is supporting the construction of an Old Age Home on a 7 acres plot, at a serene and beautiful location in Kanhe in Pune district. It will be home to 120 seniors on completion of Phase 1, taking care of all their needs including food and healthcare.
Supporting Healthcare at Public Hospitals
While public / municipal hospitals cater to the medical needs of a very large number of low income group people and have the best doctors, they are often constrained by lack of funds for infrastructure and equipment upgradation and servicing a larger number of patients. One such case in point is the Department of Urology at the Sion Municipal Hospital in Mumbai. It has an enviable record of a large number of major and minor surgeries and in 2016 entered the Guiness World Records for removing the world’s heaviest kidney tumour. Most of the surgeries are done endoscopically, requiring a 3 chip camera system for optimum visualisation and increased accuracy. The department badly needed a replacement for the very old camera being used which had frequent breakdowns. Centrum Foundation donated a latest version 3 chip camera to the department, so it could continue to do its excellent surgeries and serve the needy in a bigger way.
OPD & Free Medicines- We are also associated with the Pediatric Department of Sion Hospital, which offers free OPD services to children with Pulmonary complaints, like Asthma, requiring long term treatment. We provide free medicines and devices to these children.
Cochlear Implants for Children – Cochlear implants represent a single Big leap in technology for restoring hearing impairment through a bionic solution. Children who are born deaf, can have their hearing restored with a cochlear implant, before the age of four. Cochlear implants are very expensive and hence children from poor families are unable to benefit from them. Our Foundation participated in the Cochlear Implants Programme of The Holy Family Hospital, Mumbai to help children from very poor and marginalised get their hearing back.
